MURCHFIELD Community Centre is set to showcase the Oscar winning 12 Years a Slave this Saturday as part of its monthly cinema screening.
In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty at the hands of a malevolent slave owner, as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist will forever alter his life. Doors open at 7pm on Saturday, June 14, and tickets are £5. There’s also a chance to sample some more of the lovely Vale of Glamorgan Brewery beer that was such a hit during the Dinas Powys Fringe Festival at the licensed bar. Also selling soft drinks and the wonderful Joe’s Ice Cream.
